Simple Glam in Slideshows – Less is More!

Today’s guest post comes from SCU President and founder of Marketing Essentials International, Skip Cohen and Hybrid Photographer Suzette Allen.

Intro by Skip Cohen

Thanks to technology, video is easier than ever to capture, and it’s also never had so much diversity in its purpose, especially with “hybrid” – still images, video clips and great music all put together in one presentation.Continue reading
